The 2013 NFL scouting combine has begun, and with it begins the week-long process in which talent evaluators from 32 NFL teams will look for any reason they can find to change their initial evaluation of a player.
The Detroit Lions will be one of those teams, picking through the field of college hopefuls to find standouts they can use.
This year's combine will be of particular interest, considering how few "can't miss" prospects there are in this draft. Teams will use every bit of data they have to make the most of their picks, especially with what is expected to be a lower-than-usual overall talent level.
There are a number of players who would appear to fit well with the Lions, but none come without a fair number of question marks. The combine will be the Lions' last best chance to answer their questions on these players before opting to draft them (or not).
Some of these players are ones the Lions might be considering in the first round, and some of them the Lions may be deciding whether to draft at all. In either case, the events of the next few days should help make those decisions a lot easier, especially on these players.
